Dickson Christmas Party

Were you a good boy or girl in 2011? The Dickson Christmas Party for 2011 again was a cracker of a night, held at The God’s Cafe at the ANU. Plenty of wine and fun was had and even Santa made an appearance to deliver some presents!


2012 Spring Pennant

Competition will start on 21st February and run through until June. Note that the grading meeting for teams is not until the 7th of February therefore teams will not be confirmed and available until after this date. Look out for further updates soon.


Dusk till Dawn

The all night “Dusk till Dawn” squash challenge

will be held on 17 February. Teams of 4 will

play squash throughout the night, with matches

starting at 9:00 pm and finishing with a good old

fashioned BBQ at 7:00 am the next morning. Registrations and queries can be directed to Stephen Barnett at Stephen@blapl.com.au


Another squashie is born!

Congratulations to Paul and Kirsten Cartwright on the birth of little Samantha!

Bar Duty for 2012

Who’s responsible? WE ALL ARE!

Attention Captains

If you are nominated as a captain for your team this pennant, please keep an eye out for the captain’s meeting coming up in February. It’s a short get together where you will be giving team lists, draws and balls.
